AdAgrA Conference Dates: January 18-23, 2022
A Note from Programming
The 2022 AdAgrA Conference Programming Committee is excited to share an overview of our upcoming conference, Sharing the Blessings, scheduled for January 18-22, 2022!
- Evening plenary sessions begin Wednesday evening with our keynote address by Dr. Neal Nedley. Thursday and Friday evenings will feature families who have stepped out in faith to live the agrarian and country lifestyle.
- Morning devotionals will be presented by Dwayne Lemon challenging us to live our theme, Sharing the Blessings.
Each day will feature engaging topics for the farmer, homesteader, home gardener, educator, and entrepreneur.
Morning sessions will be primarily classroom style, and afternoons filled with demos and hands-on opportunities.
Demos: There will be plenty of demos to choose from including tree planting, bread making, composting, tractor maintenance, basic irrigation setup and more.
Hands-on: From making your very own broadfork, to flower arranging, soil blocking, trying out favorite farm tools, or wiring a farm automation system, there’s something for everyone.
Kids ages 6-14 will have a special program each morning immersing them in the new AdAgrA Curriculum.
Optional afternoon activities will be available including a two hour obstacle course, canoeing and horseback riding (additional charges may apply).
The conference will begin Tuesday evening with an interactive agriculturally themed “get acquainted” time. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will feature specific after-lunch networking times for young adults, institutional farmers, and others. Exhibit times also provide excellent opportunities to connect with fellow attendees.
Sabbath (our favorite day of the conference!)
As the Sabbath hours come, we will shift our emphasis from the work and business of agriculture to focus on its spiritual aspects. There will be inspiring mission and ministry presentations, encouraging testimonies of God’s leading through agriculture and country-living, and challenging messages to draw us up higher.
It is our prayer that each presentation will spur you on to finding and Sharing the Blessings of the agrarian lifestyle. We look forward to seeing you and your friends and family there!
